Do you like meeting new people?  Love local history? Enjoy researching or sharing stories?

If so, you could become part of our amazing team of volunteers.

Volunteering at St Albans Museums is a great way to develop your skills, while supporting us to enhance the experience of our visitors.


Types of opportunities we offer:

Regular volunteering: schools workshop support, collection cataloguing and documentation

These require a level of regular commitment, set time slots.

Irregular volunteering: family craft activities, exhibition installation, visitor surveys

No regular commitment, set time slots.

Flexible volunteering: research, costume repair, transcribing oral history recordings

No set time slots or commitment, volunteer from home / remotely.


Some opportunities are recruited for regularly (family craft activities, collecting visitor surveys), but others (collections, exhibitions) are recruited for occasionally or only once.
